National Pi Day & One More For The Sing-A-Long

March 14th National Pi Day 
Why today? Because today is 3.14, the value of Pi. Pi is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter – a mathematical concept and a number that never ends….
Being the TOTAL GEEK that I am — I wish I understood it a bit better but I don’t. So, I will honor this day by sharing one of my favorite Pie Recipes.

Shaker Lemon Pie
2 large lemons
4 large eggs, well beaten
2 cups sugar

Slice lemons as thin as paper, rind and all. Combine with sugar and mix well. Let stand at least 2 hours, preferably overnight, blending occasionally.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Add beaten eggs to lemon mixture and mix well. Turn into 9- inch pie shell arranging lemon slices evenly. Cover with top crust. Cut several slits near center.
Bake for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375 and bake for about 20 minutes or until knife inserted near edge of pie comes out clean. Let cool. Oh so YUMMY.

And one more before St. Patrick’s Day – a Tried and True
Auld Triangle by Luke Kelly
A hungry feeling
Came o’er me stealing
And the mice were squealing
In my prison cell

And that auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
Oh! To start the morning
The warden bawling

“Get up out of bed, you! And Clean out your cell!”
And that auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
Oh! the screw was peeping

And the like was sleeping
As he lay weeping
For his girl Sal
And that auld triangle went jingle-jangle

All along the banks of the Royal Canal
On a fine Spring evening
The like lay dreaming
And the sea-gulls were wheeling

High above the wall
And that auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
Oh! the wind was sighing

And the day was dying
As the like lay crying
In his prison cell
And that auld triangle went jingle-bloody-jangle

All along the banks of the Royal Canal
In the women’s prison
There are seventy women
And I wish it was with them

That I did dwell
Then that auld triangle could go jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
